I've been following this forum for about a year now.  In that time the Mavic has received several firmware updates.  I don't recall seeing a bunch of GPL posts in previous firmware release threads... why?

Because for the past year the requests have been going on privately. DJI has played games with the people requesting source. They have made false promises, danced around the issue, done everything possible to delay it, and sometimes outright said no.

Since the polite private tactic isn't working, the tactic has been changed. Public requests, and working with a copyright holder to file an injection against DJI imports.

This is REALLY a simple things to become in compliance with. Takes 5 commands. They would be in compliance, their users and the copyright holders would be happy.

git init
git add .
git commit -m "blah"
git remote add origin blah@blah
git push -u origin master

I came here to look for update results from competent pilots. Not to hear ya'll whining about DJI not releasing their code. That should have been in its own thread. Some want to spam this post to get back at DJI, seems quite petty, IMO. Thanks for making us all pay for your arguments with DJI, and ruining this post.

This thread is useless now...

The requests are here because offer of source is required to come with the release of the binary (the firmware). This is the appropriate place.

I'm REALLY (no not really) sorry we FORCED you to PAY all so much. Toughen up sunshine.

You know, if DJI provided what they are suppose to with the firmware releases, then people wouldn't need to make the requests. Seems to be the problem here is DJI.

Get used to it, this is how each firmware announcement thread will be until DJI does right. This is also the result of posting in ONE forum asking for help from other DJI owners, wonder what it would be like if it got posted in more...
Also seems those making requests, out number the few crying about it.

You win. Guess I will find a new forum. I'm sure you probably spammed the rest of them, right? Nothing better to do? Screw it up for a bunch of folks that could care less about your issues with DJI.
I'm willing to bet the vast majority of DJI pilots could care less about source code.

Vast majority care more than they know, your drone wouldn't fly without it, and the work of OSS contributors (like me) have put into it.

Your welcome, all we ask for in return is that DJI comply to the license.

Not to my knowledge, if you view their opensource page, the they only have mmctools and busybox. Busybox was only posted after the copyright owner initiated some legal legwork, which could have stopped imports of DJI's products to various countries.

I don't know the story of how mmctools came to be posted, I can only assume something similar.

Keeping on topic, I have just updated my Goggles, Mavic & RC to latest build using DJI Assistant 2. To wet to fly, but all functional testing indoors looks good.

For those who have never updated before, then patience is the name of the game. All the updates end with an update completed notice and a circle with a green tick. For the Goggles and Mavic there are a download, a transmit (data being passed to devices), and update phases each of which takes time and may stop for minutes at some point as the hardware reboots or updates. For the RC I seem to remember it was download then update.

ReleasetheSourc and A CW, this thread is for those of us that want to know how the new FW performs, I for one, don't give a s..t about your argument and you are wasting our time, so why don't you take a fight off line and PM each other instead

Moderator,Please Close down This thread and start a new one for the FW update.

I want to know how the new firmware performs too... and to do that properly I need to be able to instrument the kernel using the open source that I am rightfully allowed to request.

So stop acting like your desires trump others... this is just as relevant a line of commentary as ANYTHING you have to say. Thanks.

Moderator Please ask the legal dept to stop playing games.

You've never seen a pile of GPL requests, because we as end users had not previously attempted to organize ourselves to have our voices heard... we were all mailing support@ and being told NO, illegally.



Now... we want to be heard. So we are.

Well I am here looking for results from a competent DJI support staff member that can get MORE GPL code put up on https://www.dji.com/opensource without me having the copyright holder threaten to sue them. I'm not here to hear you whining about your "update results"... you can obtain these yourself. Just do the update, report back the "results", done!

"This thread is useless now" cry me a river... so is my drone because I can't get the GPL source code to it. Just as useful as a lead brick.

I'd bet the vast majority of DJI pilots could care less about this SINGLE thread on the forum... you've acted like it spoiled the milk in your fridge. Relax dude.

Nothing is being "screwed" up for you... we are actually doing something on your behalf, and you are too ignorant to understand, or appreciate something that became a right of yours at purchase.

Only upon being threatened to be sued by Bruce Perens the owner of the busy box copyright did they publish this page: https://www.dji.com/opensource

And that was after 8 months of emails from myself and a few other users, one of us happened to know Bruce and was able to have him make a legal request to cut the games.

Thanks for this update. I might need more patience then. My update errored out 4 times each on my iphone 6s and macbook air. Might need to keep going until it works.

Already updated, waiting for the weekend

Bad news for me. I flew the first 3 batteries after the update to v01.04.0200
Before with the v01.04.0100 I did not have any problem. Never a error.
Now, in the first session I get 2 or 3 times the "Aircraft Disconnect". The only method that I found to reconnect again was landing, turn off all, and turn on again.
The 3rd battery, Mavic flight without problems, but the 2 first was a nightmare...
All my devices with the latest firmware, mobile SMG S8+.

AH!, and when I arrive to the flying zone and turn all everything I receive the message of update the "Fly Safe Database"... Obviously I ignore in this moment. But this is the reason wich I created this thread: https://forum.dji.com/forum.php?mod=viewthread&tid=127534
I hate arrive to the flying zone and receive notifications of updates, more when 2 hours before I worked in update everything at home.

I've just viewed 1920x1080P @ 30 and 60 fps in .mp4, also 1920x1080P @ 30fps in .mov on the Goggles, no 4k nor 2.7k support.

Just as we, citizens of whatever nation, have to abide by the laws and not fly above a certain height, not drive over the speed limit, not pirate software, etc,  DJI is uing modified opensource software and not releasing the modified source back to the community as it is required by the opensource licencing agreement.

If I were to post a video doing illigal things with my drone, all the do gooders would be all over it, telling me how naughty I was...

Compile it, of course! And check it for more bugs... like we did with their FTPD, which they have subsequently fixed (and not thanked me for).



https://github.com/MAVProxyUser/ ... working/ftpd.c#L663

https://github.com/MAVProxyUser/ ... working/ftpd.c#L706

This helps us tell DJI exactly which lines of their bad GPL code to fix... thus making the product better (and safer) for everyone.

[view_image]

Nasty overflow there! Good spot! Glad they fixed it.

For those not in the know, this is a remotely exploitable bug. Any one that managed to connect to your drone's wifi (And their are ways to guess /crack that password), they could have taken over your drone or crashed it.

This is a GREAT example why complying with OSS licenses can lead to safer devices

I'll follow.  Newbie here.  I have no problem with my Mavic Pro.  Got the notice today about the upgrade while doing some test flying in 8 mph mile an hour winds.  Mostly learning to fly it with out input errors. As well as some 'moves' I've yet to see. Let everyone knows how it goes!
